The annual Whitworth Institute for Ministry is ready for registration and it should be a good one.
Also, for pastors desiring to advance their preaching NWC Presbytery is invited to form 1, 2 or several preaching cohorts to participate in the preaching track of WIM. Pastors who participate in the preaching cohort will receive a $300 grant/scholarship to WIM meaning you only pay $50 + room and board for WIM.
See below (and on the website) for the info about this preaching track.
Preaching & Teaching Scripture
Mindy Smith, Ron Pyle & Erik Peterson
This biblical preaching track will focus on the intersection of the pastor-preacher's personal spiritual formation with the responsibility to communicate the biblical message with clarity, passion and conviction. Led by a teaching team with decades of experience studying the essential elements of Christian discipleship in relation to biblical teachings, workshops will equip preachers with fresh tools as they begin to plan for the coming year of sermons. All are welcome to participate, though this track is primarily designed for a co-existing Presbyterian Church (U.S.A) preaching/teaching pastor cohort, funded by a denominational grant. Upon completion, if one chooses, participants may join or form a cohort that will continue the learning process throughout the year. Come and see.
